Synopsis
Reprising the role that won him an Emmy Award in 1981, Mickey Rooney plays Bill Sackter, struggling to cope after his good friend and guardian, Barry Morrow and his wife (played again in small roles by Dennis Quaid and Largo Woodruff) move away, learning to read with the help of Teresa Wright in the group home she runs to the consternation of local officials, discovering his religious heritage, overcoming the fire that accidentally destroys his small canteen business, and journeying to the west coast in search of the Morrows. Rooney is united with director Anthony Page and the real-life Barry Morrow, who wrote the teleplay, and at the end, the real Bill Sackter, who puts in a brief appearance (he subsequently died before the premiere of this second film on his life). Rooney again was Emmy Award-nominated.
